DURHAM, N.C. — A Durham man suffered serious injuries Friday morning after he merged onto Interstate 40 East from Exit 276, Fayetteville Road, and collided with a tractor-trailer that was traveling in the right lane.

Norman Burwick, 51, then lost control of his GMC Jimmy, which flipped over several times, went down an embankment and came to rest next to N.C. Highway 54, according to Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael.

Emergency crews took Burwick to Duke University Hospital where he was listed in serious condition. The tractor-trailer driver, Stephen Wiley, 62, of Stanley, was not injured.

No charges have been filed, but the crash was being investigated, police said. The crash closed several lanes of I-40 in that area for more than two hours.
